CALLIDE A POWER STATION
SHOWING THE WORLD HOW IT WORKS
The Callide A Power Station in central Queensland is an example of the older conventional coal-fired power stations that generate the majority of the world’s electricity.
The Callide A Power Station has been chosen to demonstrate that coal fired power generation can be done with very low emissions by applying new processes to old technology.
At Callide A the oxyfuel technology will be retro-fitted to the existing boiler
This technology will then be tested under “live” conditions. At the end of the demonstration, experts are confident the technology will prove that carbon capture is an efficient and economical way to lower CO2 emissions. The technology will then be actively marketed to the many hundreds of coal-fired power stations across China, Europe and the USA and create a whole new era of low emission coal energy.
